How to uninstall system apps on Xiaomi devices (NO ROOT)

Too often I read in the comments to the articles / reviews that I write on the blog or directly in the comment box of our YouTube channel, that Xiaomi smartphones are unbelievable but unfortunately it is not possible to remove some predefined applications, such as the weather, the browser etc. In fact, not everyone likes the system apps that Xiaomi has developed over time for MIUI, the proprietary interface of the Chinese technology giant.

Many find not only a certain annoyance in the fact that it is Xiaomi that decides for them which application to use for certain functions but also that they download battery and consume precious MB of RAM. Well, here you are then served a guide that does not require any Root permission and that will allow you to uninstall most of the system applications on your Xiaomi smartphones.

How to uninstall system apps on Xiaomi devices (NO ROOT)

TO MAKE SURE THAT THE GUIDE HAS SUCCESS YOU WILL HAVE TO HAVE INSTALLED THE ADB DRIVERS ON YOUR PC. FIND THE DIFFERENT GUIDES IN THE BLOG OR MAKE A SEARCH ON GOOGLE.

1

Open the Phone Settings and then enter the "My Device" menu. Now click 7 times on the "MIUI Version" field until you see the message "Now you are a developer".

2

Go back to the "Settings" menu and enter the one called "Additional Settings". Among the latest entries you will find the one dedicated to "Developer Options". From here you have to activate the "USB debugging" option by confirming the requested permission.

3

Also from the "Developer Options" it also activates the items "Install via USB" and "USB debugging (security settings)". For these items an active Mi Account is required on the smartphone.

4

Then connect your smartphone to the PC via USB cable (suitable for data transfer) and open the "command prompt" / "Power Shell window". If this is the first time you have connected the device to the PC, a pop-up with USB debugging consent should appear on the smartphone.

5

To issue ADB commands and then proceed you must enter the ADB DEVICES command from the Power Shell window. If everything is connected correctly you will see a series of numbers and letters appear to identify your terminal.

It is also possible to uninstall other system applications not mentioned in the list, but we advise you to proceed only if you are aware of the real functions of the package that you are going to uninstall. For example, removing the security app causes startup problems by generating a loop. In any case, Xiaomitoday.it is not responsible for any damage or bricks caused to the device.

Can I recommend the XiaomiADBFastbootTools tool by Szaki which proposes the same procedure (with other interesting little things) through a simple graphic interface?
Maybe you can also write us an article, here it is: https://github.com/Szaki/XiaomiADBFastbootTools

It is a java executable so you must have Java already installed in Windows https://www.java.com/it/download/

The archive I suggest you to download is this XiaomiADBFastbootTools-6.7.5-Win.zip, where everything is already there.

If you have correctly installed the adb drivers, open power shell (no prompt dos), attach the cable, type adb devices, load the phone name (in my case wins $) then adb shell and reappears wins $, then type the commands below, it worked for me.
